My rating: 5 of 5 stars
I absolutely ADORED this book. I'm adding this to one of my favorites. Ever.
From the description on Amazon:
Barbara Buncle is in a bind. Times are harsh, and Barbara's bank account has seen better days. Maybe she could sell a novel ... if she knew any stories. Stumped for ideas, Barbara draws inspiration from her fellow residents of Silverstream, the little English village she knows inside and out.
To her surprise, the novel is a smash. It's a good thing she wrote under a pseudonym, because the folks of Silverstream are in an uproar. But what really turns Miss Bunde's world around is this: what happens to the characters in her book starts happening to their real-life counterparts. Does life really imitate art?
First off, it was hilarious! Like, laugh out loud funny. If you've read the book--the scene where a meeting was held to figure out who John Smith was--I die!
Second, you wouldn't think that a book about a lady writing a book would be riveting--but it totally was! I couldn't put it down. I'm *so* excited to read the next in the series!
Miss Buncle's Book is a wonderful book. Books like this are few and far between. It will be totally worth your time to pick it up. I'm definitely adding it to my home library so I can read and re-read it!
(thanks for the recommendation, Ames!)
